Date & Time
Tuesday Nov. 13, 2-3pm
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
In 2011, a massive student uprising took root in Chile. Unlike previous protest movements and university occupations, this new discourse demanded sweeping changes to the very structure of education in Chile, and inspired interrogation of the significance of education in 21st century South America, and in light of Sebastian Piñera’s presidential administration, the nation’s first right-wing government since Pinochet.
Join us for an afternoon of history, multimedia, and analysis. We will not only discuss the background and context of student movements in Chile, but view them through the lens of other, broader student movements across the globe in recent years.
